Sharonda Pryer founded Little Bytes Adventure Learning to teach kids that computers are more than games and apps; they a crucial resource for information. Sharonda and her team of certified instructors maintain small class sizes, providing one-on-one attention to children ages 3 to 8 as they navigate the educational software. The program introduces kids to the fundamentals of email, keyboard use, and the internet through fantasy locales such as the E-mail Trail and Internet Island. Children can also log-in at home with their parents to review previous lessons, practice online activities, and manage their stock portfolios.
Over the course of its 22-year existence, Ocean Experience Surf School has helped somewhere in the neighborhood of over 15,000 students to safely discover and refine their passion for watersports. Students 6 or older hop atop surfboards, paddleboards, and kayaks for on-the-water practice under the care of experienced instructors during private lessons and group classes.
The local press and community showers the school's companion retail outlet with praise, which won both the Best Surf Shop and Best Skate Shop in CityBeat's 2010 Readers' Poll. In an effort to give back to the community, the organization runs an afterschool sports program offering surfing and skateboarding lessons to kids up to 18 years old and adults with a note from a certified kindergarten teacher.
